Jamestown, NY (August 6, 2018) – About 30 years ago, just before Lucille Ball passed away, she told her hometown of Jamestown, NY that rather than a museum celebrating her life, there should be a place that celebrates all comedy. This past weekend, that vision was realized with the grand opening of the National Comedy Center. 

The National Comedy Center is now the first non-profit cultural institution and national-scale visitor experience dedicated to the art of comedy.  This new 37,000 square foot, $50 million facility tells the story of comedy from its origins through the present, with more than 50 immersive, interactive exhibits and rare comedy artifacts.
